Howard and Edye, the owners of the Bucks County Gallery sent this picture of the Delaware Canal. Jack and I thought it would be really nice with a few spring flowers added.

What heralds spring in this part of the county better than Azaleas and Daff0dils? A quick thumbnail sketch is made to solidify my thoughts. I’ve taken artistic license and rearranged the elements in the photo just a bit.

My basic plan is drawn up on the canvas with a brush dipped in a thin mix of equal parts of Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson + Liquin. A few adjustments are made as I work. I’ve decided to move the bridge a little closer to the foreground.

The maze of trees in the background are washed in as a solid mass. If you would like to see any of the images larger just click on the picture. We’re ready to begin painting. Hope you’ll come back tomorrow and watch. Hugs, Mikki Senkarik
